Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for May 27, 1995
Calvin: Getting is better than having. When you get something, it's new and exciting. When you have something, you take it for granted and it's boring. Hobbes: But everything you get turns into something you have. Calvin: That's why you always need to get new things! Hobbes: I feel like I'm in some stockholder's dream. Calvin: "Waste and want," that's my motto.
